I don’t quite remember why exactly, but growing up we fed our lab, Samantha, carrots as her treats instead of biscuits. That dog had more energy than she knew what to do with any my mom took her for FOUR walks every single day but I vaguely remembering the vet saying something about watching Samantha’s weight and I guess ever since then she got carrots.
Well, Lucy is like Samantha – she will eat anything you call a “treat” and because bulldogs are prone to being, well, fat, I tried to see if Lucy would eat carrots.
I often make some sort of tuna salad every few weeks and chop up carrots for the salad so she’s used to the routine. I chop carrots and she waits until I “release” her to get the carrot.
Cindy is like velcro so if I’m in the kitchen for more than three minutes, she comes in to inspect what I’m doing. Several times I tried feeding her a piece of carrot like I do for Lucy. I finally caught her reaction on camera.
Testing the waters…
And then we finally come to the end of our experiment.
Cindy spits that carrot back out like a dart. Kind of like this clip (skip to 1:35 mark).
